We biked from Arrowtown to AJ Hackett Bridge Bungy (about 30km return). Nice route, fairly flat with some hills along the way. Bikes well serviced, recommend this company for your day hire.

Bike was like pretty well serviced. Views and trial are incredible plus you have the option of stopping at the vineries along the way and get them to pick up. Definitely recommend 🚲

Rode ebike up Gibbston Valley and beside the Kawerau River to the Gibbston Valley tavern. A bit cold but georgeous scenery and a great ride. Easy to organise and company was flexible to our travel needs and friendly. Recommended but take warm clothes in winter!
